About the 2020 Solar Fuels Science Meeting

Solar fuels are synthesized from water and carbon dioxide by harnessing sunlight, as an energy source. Artificial Photosynthesis research has greatly accelerated in the past decade as seen in advancement of our understanding of catalytic mechanisms, rapid material discovery, development of highly integrated and efficient solar-fuels generators, as well as the development of new experimental and theoretical tools.

Artificial Photosynthesis is a truly multi-disciplinary field and the 2020 Solar Fuels Science Meeting will bring together young and established investigators from campus, US national laboratories, national and international universities and research centers, who are at the forefront of their fields, to exchange ideas and advance the field of Artificial Photosynthesis. Research by the DOE Energy Innovation Hub, the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis that has been led by Caltech and is in its 10th year, will be featured in the meeting program.
